What we do

The ReCov Program is a 12 week tailored allied health-led program. It aims to help people with any ongoing COVID symptoms after their infectious period is over.

After their initial assessment, we work with patients to develop a comprehensive care plan to best cater to their symptoms.

Services that may be involved in patient care include: 

  • Clinical and neuro psychology
  • Social work
  • Nutrition
  • Occupational therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Exercise physiology 
  • Rehabilitation medicine

Who can use our service

The ReCov Program is not able to accept referrals for patients:

  • Who are not able to actively participate in therapy
  • Whose symptoms are not primarily attributable to COVID-19
  • Already undergoing therapy elsewhere for COVID-19 symptoms

Patients who are outside the RMH catchment may be offered a Telehealth consultation if there are no local services in their area.
